Some Like Democracy

According to a survey from 2017, running behind Sweden and the median in Africa as a percentage, almost half the people of the United States regard democracy as “very good.” Has that preference been declining or rising since then?

We can guess that the African view is based on too many decades of suffering under the brutal, violent, miserable experience of alternatives to democracy. As to the Swedes, their system by and large has delivered good results for them.

Would more people in the United States support democracy if both campaigns sought the votes of every American in the presidential election?
